Other Hip recalls (1 of x)

Thought it might be interesting to look at some of the other hip recalls to get a sense of what happened with those recalls so I will do that over  the next 6 or 7 posts.   I didn't realize there were so many.  Not sure this is a complete list but I'll look at each one.

There is an FDA site which lists all of the medical device recalls since 2000:  http://www.fda.gov/Safety/MedWatch/SafetyInformation/SafetyAlertsforHumanMedicalProducts/ucm153189.htm


Some additional companies of the artificial hip manufacturers that have been forced to recall their defective products include:
  • Apex Surgical
  • Encore Orthopedics
  • Stryker Howmedica
  • Sulzer Inter-Op Acetabular Shell
  • Zimmer
  • Biomet, and DePuy Orthopedic
should be interesting..  I will dig up some of this information and report on it.
